Really cool hostel. Some of the male toilets could do with updating but aside from that would highly recommend.

Eggs for breakfast included! Big thumbs up for that. Great atmosphere and the staff are fantastic. Some of the bathrooms are a little small but nothing to really complain about!

Staff was very friendly, especially the guy who is at the reception in the morning (I didn't ask his name). Breakfast is fine and the whole hostel was very clean. Very comfy and clean beds and hot showers. If your room isnt the one close to the bar, you'll have a good night of sleep, otherwise, get ready for all the noise that comes from the bar. The kitchen is very small considering how big the hostel is. There werent enough pans and plates for everybody to cook. But I'd stay with them again

Awesome hostel, in the wonderful San Telmo neighborhood (imo a much better area to stay than El Centro or Recoleta) Beautiful and spacious old building, nice beds and super friendly staff. They serve eggs with breakfast if you ask. Staff puts on a lot of good events, and there is a great rooftop terrace to chill on. Fantastic atmosphere, would definitely stay again.

we stayed in the double room with the cow painting and it was very damp and smelled alot, the shower was held together by a plastic bag!!!! the room was very big and was fine other then the damp. You had a small heater which helped as its a big old building and gets cold at night. The staff were lovely, the bar was nice and had a good vibe and you could not hear the noise although other guests arriving home was extremely noisy it echo somethinh on every night and you could not hear the noise

The hostel is really nice, the workers were all amazing with us and very kind. The place is close to almost everything and the arts on the wall are all beautiful!

I really liked Art Factory. The staff were helpful and friendly - with special mention to Diego at the front desk. The facilities, rooms and beds were comfortable, and I especially liked the street art and graffiti and art works covering the walls from top to bottom. Recommended.

A very good choice. Quiet street between San Telmo and city. Good rooms, but no day-light in the rooms. Enough toilets and showers, although shower cubicles very small. The best is the friendly and easy going staff and the nice rooftop bar. Also very good breakfast. Beautiful old house with nice paintings.

I've stayed at four different hostels in Buenos Aires, and this one is definitely the best. Really nice outside area and the staff is really friendly.

The room was clean and fun but the kitchen was already very durty, it was the same for the bathroom --> durty but it isn t the false of the personnel but of the client ... The room was cleaning ! Our room was at the first, just the stairs and we couldńt sleep with te other Who did a party ! And i think if You sleep at bar floor You gave to do party . The positif, the décoration was really great and location was good.

As our first hostel on our South American adventure it was a great place to get a feel for Buenos Aires. Helpful staff and a lot of events and hostel gatherings to help get to know the city and other people at the hostel. The art work is amazing!

Everything was perfect. Staff pleasant and extremely helpful

The staff was very helpful an oasis of English speaking people. The location looks ghetto with graffiti every where but that is the city in a nut shell. I seamed safe with single women walking the street in the dark seemingly without fear. But that is more comment on t the city than the Art Factory.

Excellent hostel: friendly staff, lovely decor and clean. Although the breakfast provision is exceptionally good, the kitchen facilities for making your own food are terrible. It would be a perfect hostel if the kitchen was better equipped and a little more spacious.

Awesome hostel! Covered in some unreal street art by artists from around the world! Really adds character to the place! Right across the street is a fruit and veggie market and a laundry facility - very convienant! The only down fall was some of the staff were not overly friendly or interested in helping us. But I would still stay here again!
